School Board Recognition Week
Posted on 10/21/2020
NYSSBAThe New York State School Boards Association recognizes October 19 - 23 as School Board Recognition Week. This is a time to promote awareness and understanding of the important work performed by school board members. Rondout Valley School District is joining all public school districts across the state to celebrate School Board Recognition Week to honor local board members for their commitment to Rondout Valley and its children.

“It takes strong schools to build a strong community, and these men and women devote countless hours to making sure our schools are helping every child learn at a higher level,” Dr. Joseph Morgan said. “They make the tough decisions every month and spend many hours studying education issues and regulations in order to provide the kind of accountability our citizens expect.”

Morgan said the key work of school boards is to raise student achievement by:
Creating a shared vision for the future of education
Setting the direction of the school district to achieve the highest student performance
Providing accountability for student achievement results
Developing a budget that aligns district resources to improve achievement
Supporting a healthy school district culture in which to work and to learn
And much more!

“School board members give the Rondout Valley citizens a voice in education decision making. Even though we make a special effort to show our appreciation in October, their contribution is a year-round commitment,” Morgan said.

The members serving our district are as follows: 
Dawn Van Kleeck - President
Nicole Parete – Vice President
Breanna Casey
Chris De Pew
Elissa Jury
Brian Martin
Carolyn Peck
Michael Redmond
Megan Snair
